Lauren Wisniewski is a person of too many interests and too few hours awake. As L.W. Salinas, she writes–fiction and poetry, primarily–and records audiobooks.

When she isn’t writing historical or horror fiction, Lauren podcasts avidly as part of the GonnaGeek network. She is a cohost on the Marvel-based shows Legends of SHIELD and Legends of SHIELD Longbox Edition as well as writing and acting on Strange N Unusual, a horror-comedy audioplay. In addition to guest appearances on numerous other podcasts, Lauren also provides the introduction to Better Podcasting and the official GonnaGeek podcast.

She divides her remaining hours of free time crafting. She knits, crochets, hand-embroiders, and needle-felts. Her crafts can be found on her Etsy store, DarkSide Stitches. She has recently turned her biology degree toward a hobby in ethical mouse taxidermy, much to the curiosity of her two cats and the exasperation of her husband.

Lauren lives in Houston, Texas.
